"Very thorough indeed. This DVD is filled with lots of good information and demonstrations as the horses made it, becoming increasingly more bold and confident. The work is an excellent compliment to every horse person's educational library."
Franklin Levinson - Internationally acclaimed author, trainer and Creator of "Beyond Natural Horsemanship"
“Spook Busting Secrets is one of the best training DVD's I have ever viewed. It is well produced with loads of helpful information and clearly demonstrated technique. The methods are explained as well as shown, which is the way I think thee sorts of teaching tools should be. It is without unnecessary personality and ego insertions into the presentation. Anna's manner throughout the DVD is calm, quiet, specific and precise. The methods and lessons are easily understood through the skill and style of Anna's way of speaking and teaching. I would strongly urge any horse enthusiast to add Anna Twinney’s DVD's to their reference library of quality, informative and extremely valuable equine related material.”
